UPDATED:  July 18 2012

This page earlier presented an account of what I would be removing from this site in the light of an agreement made at Pattaya Court. This I have removed and updated and will present to the court on request.

It was presented because at the time Drew Noyes had still not published the judgment ordered by the court and still had not removed any libelous content from his site.  It was also published to clarify Drew Noyes’ claims.

When Drew Noyes did actually publish the judgment, long after it was published on this site, he published it in such a way as to suggest I settled a 5 million baht law suit under the headline:

 ‘Settlement of 5 millon baht law suit against Andrew Drummond’.

To this day in all his comments he has only alluded to actions required by the court of Andrew Drummond and none of the requirements required  of  himself.

On my recent return to Bangkok I noticed (1) that Drew Noyes has removed selected items from his site and (2) that he is seeking an injunction against me for contempt of court.

To cap it all Drew Noyes did not publish the judgment in his paper until July 19th.  And flagging the judgment above a front page picture of myself taken by the Phnom Penh Post and copied from www.andrew-drummond.com he wrote the defamatory headline:

 ‘Discredited Tabloid Blogger Ordered Back to Court’.

In the story on page 8 of the Pattaya Time he stated

 ‘that the certified English translation is provided and approved by Drummond’s lawyer to stop the legal actions that were instituted against Drummond.’

Again this is not true. The translations were not approved by my lawyers. I did not settle because I was concerned about legal action.

I settled because the court clearly sensibly wished a settlement on cases which would drag on for years through the Thai court system and take up the time of a lot of people.

Moreover there is no need to state that the translations were approved by my lawyers unless one is suggesting there is something wrong with the translations.

He further states

(a) That a copy of the Contract of Compromise was inserted into the June 16-30 issue of the Pattaya Times.

That cannot be true because neither the plaintiff or defendant had translated copies of the agreement at that time and did not get them until the end of June.  Nobody I know has seen this item. However he clearly had a copy by July 1st and did not publish it in his July 1st issue of the Pattaya Times.

He further states that he apologised to Andrew Drummond on June 5th 2012 until June 21 2012 on the internet version of the Pattaya Times. Nobody has seen this apology not can it be found in cache on the internet.

He further states:

 ‘The plaintiff’s attorneys demand legal actions will be enforced and Andrew Drummond will be held by the presiding judge in contempt of court for violating the court order. ….the same judge stated that if Andrew Drummond violated the terms of the settlement to cancel the law suit against him, then the law suit would be re-established and that he would be sent to jail’.

While the same conditons apply to both parties I am unaware that the Presiding Judge singled out the defendant in this case.

Drew Noyes further suggested that I had admitted making libelous and false statements against him. This is not the case. There has been no such admission.

In publishing the agreement Drew Noyes in the internet edition of the Pattaya Times also added the following at the end of his story.

Drummond lies.

When clicking on this the reader is taken to an anonymous letter which states: ‘The many lies Drummond tells are magnified by his lie to the Thai authorities claiming he works for the London Evening Standard. The paper denies any connection.”

This is of course gross libel and another invention.

In addition Drew Noyes has been totally insincere in removing libels about myself from his website. His site contains a whole series of libels which he essentially has kept on the front page for months on end. He for instance still maintains I am the subject of a massive police investigation, a libel which was subject of as court action, which I agreed to drop as part of the agreement.

Following points 1 and 2 I have made amendments to this site in accordance with the wishes of the Pattaya Court and have instructed solicitors accordingly.

This of course means yet ANOTHER battle with Drew Noyes – so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks again to readers for their contributions so far.

  1. Pat, AD was fighting in a Thai court. I don't think you understand the culture here is to try to avoid conflict and to compromise. Thailand is a sovereign country and does not have to follow western ideas

  2. Had to chuckle when I read the link to the PT site. His article has one comment from someone called anonymous (anyway that is what is written) bringing up "lying to Thai authorities saying he works for the London Standard who have never heard of him."

    I reckon the people who frequent this site may be the only readers PT.com has, just to see what other rubbish he thinks up

  3. Story running on another site that the PAPPA offices on Threppasit Road have been closed and emptied of all furniture. Has Mr Wonderful flown the coop, or merely carried out his threat to pollute Rayong with his presence? Was his last bulldust post in Pattaya Times a farewell shot?

  4. Well, need a BIG building for all of them. Something about the size of a British Telephone box.
    I sometimes wondered if he wouldn't be better up stairs, for instance. Security, and all that, you know?

  5. Pattaya Times is a week late? Never noticed, are there actually people who look for it coming out? Sorry Andrew, you need to keep up with your latest (supposed in someone's head) crimes, I suppose

  6. Is there any way to "bump" this thread? I fear it is getting lost and forgotten, but that it may explode at any time

  7. Wow, somebody needs to advise DN. He lost his court case to AD. No 5 million compensation, no closing down the site and no libelous content to be removed because there wasn't any. However by reading the latest (late) Pattaya Times you would think that he was successful. He has devoted a nearly 2 page spread in a 12 page newspaper (which he claims is the biggest but is actually the smallest newspaper in Thailand) to his foe AD in what can only be described as totally misleading twist on what actually occurred .
    The heat was coming off this story after over a year of exposes. However now DN has thrown gasoline in the fire with this rubbish that he claims was written by "Thai lawyers representing the plaintiffs." In my opinion this was written by DN himself. It contains the usual grammar flaws and poor choice of words that we have seen many times before. It is not something a QUALIFIED lawyer would write.
    He continues to claim that AD has libeled him, but again, the same as when he was in court he doesn't actually say what or where he has been libeled.
    I know DN reads this site daily, so Drew, can you clear this up once and for all. HOW DID AD LIBEL YOU? Please tell us and the courts if it is true or just keep quiet.
    Has Pat Angko started his new website?

  8. What would be the point of anyone advising Drew Noyes? Would he listen? Maybe just long enough to start scheming how to turn things around in his favour. In his mind only, not the minds of real people. His article in the (late) latest edition of Pattaya Times might help him to get a "not guilty by reason of insanity" get out of jail card.

  9. Hello Andrew,
    Without commenting on any court case, did you have a positive day yesterday ? You must have a lot on your plate, i can understand the delays in any new info and am sure that a lot of us are dying to hear from you.
    Hang in there and hope all the best for you.
    Good luck
    Skippy le Chihuahua.

  10. Yes- thanks Skippy. Actually I have to apologise because I have either deleted or am holding comments (apologies to Terry who put in a splendid effort) pending court action. Suffice to say that a publication by Drew Noyes in the Pattaya Times of a judgment a staggering seven weeks after adjudication at Pattaya court, accompanied by libelous remarks has raised the stakes somewhat. To those who said I should have not settled with Drew Noyes I probably owe a wee apology. Many thanks for your continuing support. I will however be putting something up later in the day although I cannot reveal my hand.
